40th Year Celebration:

an exciting collection of beautiful CloisonnÉ and ChamplevÉ Lamps

Cloisonné and Champlevé are terms that describe techniques for applying colorful enamels to metal.

Champlevé is the older technique, wherein fields of design are gouged or cast in metalware, filled with enamel and then fired. The metal lines are polished, and they contribute to the design. In champleve vases one most often finds one or more bands of design with areas of plain or etched metal separating them.

In Cloisonné wares the enamel is contained within thin walls of metal that have been soldered to the surface of the metal vase. Cloisonne vases, both antique, vintage and contemporary are most often completely covered with enamel. They have tightly patterned backgrounds, with decorative bands at the top of the neck and at the bottom of the vase, and feature stylized floral designs arrayed beautifully around the vase. We feature four quite different cloisonne lamps, two antique, two vintage.

We are pleased to highlight these colorful and beautiful enameled metal lamps and to call attention to the possibilities our lamp shades offer in bringing antique pieces into contemporary settings. Our entire Champlevé and Cloisonné Lamp Collection will be on display and available for purchase Friday, September 28, 2012.

What's better, to be fortunate enough to have heirloom cloisonné vases to transform into beautiful lamps, or to shop from our amazing collection? Come see for yourself....

Mrs Y and her daughter with their heirloom cloisonne lamp

Mrs. Y. initially came to the lamp shop intent on buying a new lamp with a gift certificate from her daughter, but one look at our collection reminded her of a family treasure. She had 3 pairs of beautiful cloisonné vases that she got in China with her own parents many years ago. She brought us two of those vases and we wired them for lamp bases then created shades to complete the transformation. She and her daughter came in together to take them home. We hope these lamps will evoke family memories for many more generations.
